Prep: 10
Cook: 20

    The goodness of quinoa and seasonal pears make this one-pot breakfast perfect for cold mornings.


    • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
    • 2 cups So Good™ Almond Milk Unsweetened, or milk of choice
    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • Pinch of cinnamon
    • Zest from 1 lemon
    • 8 prunes, pitted and chopped
    • 4 pears, cored and diced
    • 4 Weet-Bix™, crushed
    • 1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped


    1. Place quinoa, almond milk, water, cinnamon, lemon zest, and prunes into a large pot and stir to combine. Add pears but do not stir again.
    2. Bring mixture to the boil, cover and immediately reduce heat to very low. Cook for 20 minutes.
    3. Remove pan from heat and stir to combine all ingredients. Mix through Weet-Bix and pistachios.
    4. Divide quinoa porridge into bowls and serve hot.


    • Porridge can be served with a drizzle of honey and a dollop of unsweetened yoghurt if you wish.
    • We kept the skin on our pears but you can peel before cooking if preferred.
